By quite a long way, the best show I have ever watched.
It seems almost every show has mimicked it. Obviously Breaking Bad, obviously Mad Men. I even think Orange is the New Black, certain anime, and many – if not most – artful shows have drawn inspiration from The Sopranos.
Please watch it.
In the last episode, watching Meadow park and wondering if her parallel parking time is measuring the seconds the Soprano family has left to live, I have never felt as tense or as anxious. I have never felt so deeply, instantly, as sympathetic for two characters which had so profoundly lost my sympathy. I had tears in my eyes even as I tried to chit-chat and predict what might happen, on-screen.
Truly an amazing series.
